COMEDIAN John Bishop is to stop off in Dunfermlin­e when his Back At It stand-up tour takes to the road next year.

After two years spent TV presenting, stage acting, podcast hosting, dog walking and decorating the spare room, John is getting back to the thing he loves most, standing on stage and making people laugh.

His huge 57-date tour kicks off in March and will come to the Alhambra Theatre on Saturday, December 7, 2024.

Announcing the new tour, John said: “I’m delighted to be hitting the road again with my new show, ‘Back At It’. I did a few gigs in New York and some over in Ireland and I’ve got the juices flowing again!

“I’m looking forward to seeing you all out there on the road.”

Within three years of his first ever comedy gig in 2000, John was playing to sold out arena audiences across the country and released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history.

Since then he has achieved huge success with a number of his own comedy, entertainm­ent and documentar­y shows including: ‘John Bishop’s Australia’ (BBC1), ‘John Bishop’s Britain’ (BBC1); ‘John Bishop’s Only Joking’ (Sky1); ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1); ‘The John Bishop Christmas Show’ (BBC1) and ‘John Bishop’s Gorilla Adventure’ (ITV1), ‘John Bishop’s Ireland’ (ITV1) and four series of the critically acclaimed ‘John Bishop: In Conversati­on With’ (W Channel) which saw him chatting one to one with some of the biggest names in entertainm­ent, music and sport.

Other TV credits include two series of ‘The John Bishop Show’ (ITV1), ‘Doctor Who’ (BBC1) and the documentar­y John & Joe Bishop: Life After Deaf (ITV1).

John is co-host of the podcast Three Little Words.

With writer, actor and director Tony Pitts, the two friends talk to fascinatin­g people about their lives, hopes, struggles and beliefs.

The show features a rich mix of guests, from world famous musicians and actors, to scientists, politician­s, artists and sports stars.

Past guests have included Robbie Williams, John Cleese, Sebastian Faulks and Professor Brian Cox.

Most recently, John starred in the four month UK & Ireland tour of Mother Goose with Ian McKellen, which included a hugely successful run in London’s West End.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 1, at 10am at johnbishop­online.com.
